Can head CT scans in an infant cause radiation and learning disabilities?

Can head CT scans in an infant cause radiation and learning disabilities?

Not exactly: A ct is by definition 'radiation', since it is a series of xrays computer reconstructed as sliced pictures of body tissues. It doesn't cause radiation but exposes the person to radiation. Modern ones may expose one to an amount similar to a transcontinental flight over the usa. Repeat exposure is a current topic of concern, but no specific learning disorder has been identified as connected to this. ...Read more

When will my baby learn to walk?

When will my baby learn to walk?

12 to 15 months: Children want to check out their world starting around 6 months, and by 9 months are able to crawl around. By 12 months, that just doesn't cut it, and they pull up on objects and cruise. We expect babies to walk between 12 and 15 months, though of course some will walk by 9 or 10 months, and some won't by 15 mo. A lot depends on the drive and gross development of the child. ...Read more

Children are surprising. ...Read more

My two months old infant has flaky scales on her scalp. Is this normal?

Yes: This sounds like cradle cap or scalp seborrhea, which is very common in infants. You can put baby oil on the area 1/2 hour prior to shampooing and then shampoo with a baby shampoo.

At what age can infants start holding their bottle?

At what age can infants start holding their bottle?

The best answer is n: It's best if an infant never lies down holding a bottle. Formula & juices sit around the teeth & these are toddlers & preschoolers w/ rotted brown nubs or silver caps for front teeth. Some studies showed more ear infections. An 8/9 month old can often hold a bottle but should only do so at meal time in the high chair. Walking around w/ a bottle leads to cavities, poor feeding & often anemia. ...Read more

At what age can children learn to give themselves insulin injections safely?

Really depends: It depends on when first diagnosed, many of the 1-2 year olds are so used to the injections given by their parents, that they ask to give it a try.
